BELBEV WHITE

 

Awarded the Silver Medal for Quality in 1997.

 

Belbev White beer is an unfiltered high-fermentation beer that is brewed according to a slow brewing procedure.

We, of course, use wheat in the brewing of our Belbev White beer, but also several natural herbs, and no chemical flavouring or preservatives.

During the eight-hour long brewing process all raw materials are mixed with great care. First clean water enters the masher, immediately followed by malted grain.

By filtering this extract in the mash filter, the high-sugar extract is separated from the spent grain. The sugar extract (‘wort’), is gathered in the brewing vessel and boiled. The carefully selected hops are added, which will give the beer its spicy flavour. The high-sugar extract, wort, from the brewhouse is mixed with yeast.

Once these have been mixed the sugars will metabolize into alcohol and natural carbon dioxide which causes the typical smell anyone who has ever entered a fermentation area will be able to recall.
